  1. Last day…….should have just attended your own retirement party and left the scumbag in jail. Suicide = Hell.


    • There is absolutely no truth in your statement that “suicide=hell”. As the mother of a suicide victim I am infuriated when people automatically assume that anyone who commits suicide is going to hell. There is nothing in the Bible to back up your misguided assumption.


      • There is nothing in the Bible that would imply that our Heavenly Father would cast one into Hell over suicide. I think that our Heavenly Father looks through our life’s work and due to his empathy, He, and He alone, decides our final fate. A person who would say otherwise to a suffering family is not a child of God.
        I am sorry for what happened to Ms. White and her unfortunate decisions. I wish these decisions had been different. I did not live her life, therefore, I cannot say what I would have done or question her decisions. I will say to her family that I am sorry for your grief and pray for your comfort. You do not deserve the further suffering of unkind comments.


  2. Yes, suicide equals hell. I don’t understand how people can fall for these jailbirds. They must really be desperate for attention.


  3. God bless Vickey White and her family. The Bible says “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. “why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?


  4. No one is condoning what Vicki did but every correctional officer understands how it can happen. Prison is a very needy place. Sometimes those needs end up being met inappropriately and illegally. My heart is breaking for Vicki. We would have locked her up but we would have understood.
